OneXPlayer Mini Takes On the Steam Deck With a New AMD Model
By EWDISON THEN
As its name suggests, the OneXPlayer Mini is actually a slightly smaller variant of the original model that launched in 2021. Though it does have the same 7-inch display, the OneXPlayer Mini features higher resolution, faster storage, 16GB of RAM, and a variety of ports.
Unlike its predecessor, the new OneXPlayer Mini arrives with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800U, which has eight cores and 16 threads, as well as Radeon Vega 8 graphics. For some consumers, that alone makes this model a more worthwhile gaming computer.
Whether the OneXPlayer supplants the Steam Deck depends likely on the price tag. Will gamers pony up the $999 for OneXPlayer, with its AMD chip and Windows OS, versus the $649 for Steam Deck? Given Steam Deck's limited availability, many PC gamers might be tempted.
